In this second episode of The Word Witch, Claire talks to Jordan Rayne of Sincerely the Tarot! In this amazing conversation, they discuss finding spirituality as a queer and trans person, reclaiming the language of religion, navigating gender and queerness in the Tarot, and searching for representation in tarot decks. Before the interview kicks off, Claire shares the significance of Samhain, a.k.a. All Hallow’s Eve, a.k.a. Halloween. It's the witches’ new year and a powerful time to peer through the veil to connect with your ancestors, whether they be blood relatives, chosen family, or forebears on your path.
